‘Have a NYEs day’ at free family event

Kingsfold based builders’ merchant NYEs will be hosting a free family fun day on Saturday 18th May to celebrate its rebrand and new warehouse premises.


The family owned merchant, formerly known as D.W. Nye, has recently undergone a facelift, updating its logo and name, and adding an additional 1000m2 to its warehouse and office facilities.


The event, named ‘Have a NYEs day’, will welcome visitors between 10am and 3pm for an array of free entertaining activities, and delicious gourmet delights served up by local suppliers.

 Have a NYEs Day family fun day event will include mini diggers from Diggerland FOR MEDIA

One of the biggest celebrities in the building trade – Bob the Builder – will be meeting guests throughout the day, and families will have the chance to get autographs and take photos. Children will also be able to test out their construction skills on one of the mini diggers at NYEs’ designated Diggerland area, have their face painted and get a glitter tattoo.


Free food and drink will be available for all visitors, including mouth-watering NYEs pies – specially made for the occasion, as well as burgers, hot dogs and a limited quantity of NYEs popcorn and candyfloss. Guests can also enjoy a NYEs beer from the Surrey Hills Brewery or sip on an exclusive NYEs gin cocktail, blended just for the occasion. Soft drinks, tea and coffee will also be served.


Prizes will be up for grabs in two unique competitions to test bricklaying and nail-banging skills along with live giveaways on NYEs’ social media platforms. Raffle tickets in aid of The Rainy Day Trust – the UK’s only charity supporting the home improvement workforce in times of need – will also be on sale with prizes including family days out, cinema tickets, power tools and restaurant vouchers. All proceeds from the raffle will go directly to the charity.


Rex Nye, who is Managing Director at NYEs, said “Everyone is welcome to attend and we hope as many people as possible can join us on Saturday 18th May. It’s going to be a fantastic day for all the family with lots to see and do, as well as an opportunity to celebrate the best of our region by sampling some delicious food and drink.”
